Mason Farm & Ribbon Park Proposal


Use portion of Mason's West Campus and Shirley Gate-Braddock (SG-B) properties to produce food for campus dining facilities, local groceries, and restaurants. Connect properties with main campus via ribbon park.

Preliminary Plan

Below is one conceptual plan for  how the Ribbon Park might be laid out. Light green areas are the ribbon park proposal on Mason property. Darker green areas are easements to connect the properties to each other  and to Fairfax Villa Park (County) and Providence Park (Fairfax City).
